About me

I have almost 10 years post qualifying experience since finishing my degree in counselling. I completed a masters in psychology writing my thesis on ADHD and memory and I am currently undertaking my doctorate in counselling psychology. I have a special interest in trauma and birth trauma.

I am qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), both highly effective treatments for trauma, as well as negative thinking patterns, anxiety and a wealth of other presentations. My personal practice is moving toward an integrative style of therapy underpinned by a humanistic approach.

I have worked with student populations (school and university), forensics, social services and voluntary organisations. I am currently working part-time within the NHS and have done for a number of years.

I am happy to offer evening and weekend appointments.
